When it comes to classic style with a feminine twist, we look to one of our favorite fashion bloggers, Mara Ferreira of M Loves M, for inspiration. As a busy mom, wife, and influencer, Mara’s California-cool approach to style is fun (yet very practical!), which is why we asked her to curate her own Trunk with her favorites for the season. Keep scrolling for a peek into Mara’s signature aesthetic and her must-haves for a capsule wardrobe.
Elevated everyday essentials
A simple outfit formula for days you’re pressed for time, but still want to look polished: jeans + blouse + booties. We’re taking note from Mara and pairing our favorite denim with a brightly colored top. If neutrals are more your thing, a bold print, unique neckline, or romantic ruffle can also dress up any outfit. Complete the look with a comfy pair of booties and a cardigan in case temps start to dip.
Cardigans for cozying up
We can’t get enough cardigans this season, and we love the way Mara often styles her chunky knits over a casual shift dress. The contrast in colors gives the outfit a pop, while the varying textures create a cozy sense of comfort. Style the ensemble with sneakers for a laid-back look, or with sock booties to elevate it to the next level.
Need-now fall footwear
No matter where you’re headed this season, there are boots that are sure to complement your outfit—another reason we’re glad Mara included a variety in her exclusive Trunk. Go for an ankle bootie with jeans during the day, then swap them out for a pair of knee-high boots and a bold printed mini-dress for a fun night out.
If it’s the details that make the difference, then that’s exactly why we’re swooning over this outfit. Mara chose workwear essentials with an extra dose of style, like this silk blouse in a whimsical print and paperbag-waist pants in a cropped, wide-leg silhouette. They’re just as versatile as your everyday favorites, but better.
